Jesus's Last Words

If the last words of the crucified Jesus, “It is finished” was the end of the story on Good Friday, then I’m not sure why anybody would consider Christianity? But Friday was not the end of the story. Sunday was still to come!

The last words of the resurrected Jesus, “Surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age” give us every reason to consider Christianity, because Jesus is alive and gives us the promise of eternal life that begins the moment we acknowledge His presence in our lives.

The simple, yet profound truth of the Easter story is that “God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16).
